The Herald-Mail has a great writeup today about game designer John Poniske, a Social Studies teacher in Pennsylvania. You may recognize his name as we’ve covered some news about his game, King Philip’s War, before.

Poniske feels historical wargames are a fantastic starting point for future research on a topic. “Finding out the minutiae of an event is a joy.”

The article goes on to mention the games he’s published, his latest game, and some brief comments on the board game industry as a whole.

I find it  amusing that he’s also designed Leaping Lemmings, a family game amongst all his historical games.
